FRSC To Deploy Breathalyzers To Test Motorists For Alcohol
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun Sector Command is to deploy breathalyzers to test motorists in order to detect those who drive under the influence of alcohol during the Eid al–Adha (Sallah) festivities.
The Sector Commander of FRSC, Mr. Ahmed Umar, made this known in an interview.
Umar said that any motorist who tests positive for alcohol would be subjected to a drug test.
He said that the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) would be engaged for this purpose during the festival.
“People should not indulge in drinking and driving at the same time to prevent unnecessary loss of life,” he said.
Umar also said that any vehicle impounded because the driver violated traffic rules and regulations would not be released until after the Sallah festival.
